LATEST FOOLHARDY NEWS:
So, we have been working hard over the past year and creating new content and we are happy to announce we have new comedic circus routines ready for booking. Including an hilarious club passing routine with Cosmo & Lucas, a 16 high crystal-tumbler stacking and balancing act, a new mysterious magic act (disembodiment!) and of course some very topical new walkabout characters.
The circus industry has been working very hard to create and implement circus Covid protocols ready for the 2021/22 season. The Foolhardies are fully compliant with these and we are happy to send you a copy of the paperwork for your peace of mind.
Rest assured our unique blend of humour and slapstick is still as anarchic and chaotic as ever ;-) so don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements either for a show or anything else we offer.
WooHoo! We are back! Bouncing back into 2022 with a spring in our steps, very excited to announce we are 100% running our wonderful Home-Ed Circus Camp this year, after a crazy long gap since 2019.
It is with a welcome sigh of relief that the Fools begin the satisfying process of organising a fun filled family circus camp for you home educating families out there, for the first week in June, 2022.
We do sooooo look forward to seeing you all again, in a field in Norfolk, in some strange kinda fancy dress clobber, covered in candyfloss and popcorn and with a strange court jester mask, smudged lipstick, grass stained knees... dancing to upside down music and saying Yes! Yes! Yes! to all of the children's crazy requests... because we will all be so bliss filled and happy to be there again, to be connecting, to be carefree, to be cartwheeling through daisies and drinking tea and eating cake til we are fit to burst.
There will be slightly off the wall cabarets, loud obnoxious jesters (Peat... ;-) You know who you are...!), endless biscuits, circus shows, fire shows, dodgy talent shows where anything goes, toasting giant marshmallows and storytelling round the bonfire, wonky face-painting, really bad dad dancing, random happenings, odd workshops, blank faced parents walking around in a daze hardly able to believe we are once again prancing around carefree in a field, dodging juggling balls, looking for lost fidget spinners and dusting off grazed knees for the umpteenth time as little Charlie once again falls off his stilts... Lovely!

We are flexible and aim to meet your specific needs. We can offer the following in any configuration:

Foolhardies Online Streaming Service
The Foolhardies are proud to begin development of our new streaming service.
We have been fortunate to receive financial support via a grant as well as business help and advice.
The grant was secured through “The New Anglia Visitor / Wider Economy Grant Scheme, funded by the European Regional Development Fund
Our new streaming service will offer schools, organisations and individuals access to online circus skills workshops and Foolhardy performances.
The workshops will include juggling from beginner to advanced, diabolo, poi poi, clowning and circus based fitness ideas and much more, They will be tailored for all age groups and abilities and so are very inclusive for all.
The content will be both instructive, informative, practical and fun. This is a project we are very enthusiastic and excited about and we look forward to opening for bookings very soon.
Over the next few months we will be creating a dedicated web page where we will be uploading workshops and providing access and further information about signing up. In the meantime if you require further information please don't hesitate to get in touch.
